The "Parables" for an important commemoration are read on the eve of the feast, and are usually from the OT, and they always elucidate the meaning of the feast in some way. We look at the 3 OT readings for Pentecost Vespers, which, among other things, describe the ministry of the Holy Spirit, the calling of the Gentiles, the promise of the sending of the Holy Spirit to all Christians, and a superb description of the human condition and how the Holy Spirit helps heal it.
This last point may be the most important one, because of we do not recognize our need, we will not do everything in our power to have the Holy Spirit abide in us.
The giving of the Holy Spirit is the last big piece of our salvation. The Lord Jesus Christ became incarnate, taking on and changing our nature, teaching by word and example, and was crucified, buried and rose from the dead, enabling our flesh to defeat death. Then after 40 days He ascended, showing us that our human flesh could be with God in eternity.
Then according to the promise, the Holy Spirit was given, without which our salvation would ot be possible. The "take home" message is that in order to have the Holy Spirit abide in us, since He is the Spirit of Truth, we must live according to the truth. This entails much more that only not telling a lie!
The readings for Divine Liturgy on Pentecost give the story of Pentecost and our Lord 39;s prophesy of it. The "take home" for Pentecost is from one of the Vespers readings: We look into how to learn to discern what is in our hearts, whether it be according to the old, or according to the new.
The Holy Spirit will not continue to abide in a heart that does not seek after the new ways. We contrast new and old ways and discuss how to develop the skill to discern between them.
This is a critically important subject. This homily is a bit longer than normal, but it is important, and it is difficult to discuss important things, and important skills in minutes.
The Gospel reading for Pentecost includes: This is not innate in our sinful condition. How do we learn to thirst? We must combine and search for knowledge about our condition and its weaknesses, and effort, borne of faith, to walk in the light.
This does not just happen, as we be-bop through life. May God help us to thirst for Him, may we dedicate ourselves to learning ever more to thirst for Him. What is a Christian? The readings for Pentecost, especially those from the Old Testament, provide the answer.
A short catechesis on the Holy Spirit, covering His procession fro the Father, the various symbols for the Holy Spirit, and the important scripture text which tells us not to "quench the Spirit", and about blasphemy against the Holy Spirit it.
Then we get to the best part, the best a pastor has to give his flock. We discuss how the Holy Spirit communicates with us, and how to listen to and "feel" our heart, and this "understanding that is within us" will teach us all things, and guide and help us in everything.
We must learn to know when our heart is cold, or warm, enlarged or shriveled up, soft or hard.
This is a skill which we must learn; we can speak a little bit about it, but only God can teach us.Study in Canada without IELTS in many colleges and universities of top rankings!
